The articles in this collection constitute the proceedings of the Canadian Mathematical Society Annual Seminar on Mathematical Quantum Theory, held in Vancouver in August 1993. The meeting was run as a research-level summer school concentrating on two related areas of contemporary mathematical physics. The first area, quantum field theory and many-body theory, is covered in volume 1 of these proceedings. The second area, treated in the present volume, is Schrodinger operators. The meeting featured a series of four-hour mini-courses, designed to introduce students to the state of the art in particular areas, and thirty hour-long expository lectures. With contributions from some of the top experts in the field, this book is an important resource for those interested in activity at the frontiers of mathematical quantum theory.
